I wanted to get my son’s trousers hemmed when I stumbled across this amazing place at 2505 Eastchester Road. It goes by the name Frida Garment Care and is one of the oldest stores there in the neighbourhood. They have an experienced old-school tailor who has been in this business for almost 50 years and has mastered this art next to perfection. It’s almost as if he is aware of every single inch being torn and stitched. With great experience comes great precision and that gets reflected in the invoice you get. You won’t feel that you are being overcharged. I got my son’s trousers hemmed for just 20$. They also have a dry cleaning facility which is equally lucrative and efficient. I’ve got the worst stains removed from my winter wear and they have become as good as new. All thanks to Frida Garment Care.

If you live near Pelham Parkway in the Baychester neighborhood, there is one place that I am sure you would never miss going to!!! You might have guessed it right, it's the Garabedian House. On a usual day, it may seem like a regular 2 storeyed house to you, but Garabedians have created their own small world inside. It's a tradition that this family has been following for the last 40 years, putting their soul into decorating the mannequins and always giving people something new to look for. Your eyes will get stuck at the sight of Jesus surrounded by Joseph, Mary, and the Three Kings, MJ singing his best hits, Superman holding Louis Lane, and Donald unable to get his eyes off Marilyn Monroe. The kids already love this place and to make it even more welcoming they have recently added 3 fiberglass figures of Alvin and the Chipmunks. During Christmas eve the house gets so crowded that it's almost impossible to find a place to park your vehicle and locals might not be that friendly so avoid parking in front of their residence. Gary Garabedian, the owner of this house is such a benevolent human being and it's really hard to find people who value legacy more than anything in this world. They are soon going to add new attractions to their portfolio real soon, so don’t forget to check this place out.
